When a New England family discovered an old $20 bill among their possessions, they contacted two local dealers. The first offered them $1,153 and the second $1,900 for their entire collection, including the now rare $20 bill. Fortunately, they sought a third opinion and contacted Littleton Coin Company.
Littleton's president David Sundman was about 5 feet away when he saw the note and exclaimed, "That's a rare note!" The $20 bill turned out to be the extremely rare 1863 Gold Certificate (Friedberg #1166b) -- one of only 6 known to exist. With Littleton's advice in directing the note to the right venue, this rare Gold Certificate sold in seconds for $242,000!
